As for the loud music in the car I couldn't agree more. However, there is a psychological effect that headphone have of isolating you from your environment that's not quite the same in a car.

Even when I walk with headphones I have to keep a special awareness of my environment. I have crossed the street at least once without looking. That was enough proof for me.
On the other hand, isn't that what our leaders do?
Judge and jury = me being questioned and that is why I mention explaining myself. Totally wouldnt work, i have no disillusions that it would. I was simply replying to the absurd scenario in Addict's post. I have a strong suspicion that he doesnt actually ride enough to experience much of what he posts about.

As for leaders projecting other's words onto them, yeah thats done a lot. Its a pretty common human behavior.
